Every morning, we wake up, we go through our morning ritual, we put together an outfit, and we find the closest full size mirror to check ourselves out, and maybe snap a quick OOTD on our preferred social media app.
Generally, we instinctively grab our trusty black pants or black blazer, or both, knowing very well that anything paired with it will match. A great option to keep when in a professional setting. But in life you need to stand out from the crowd, make a statement, and so an easy solution is to play with patterns to give you that edge!
TIP ONE: STICK WITH THE SAME COLOURS
One of the simplest tricks to mixing patterns is to keep it within the same shade of colours. Let the patterns be the statement not the colour.
TIP TWO: MAKE BLACK & WHITE STRIPES YOUR NEW BEST FRIEND
Black and white stripes are a great starter pattern to mix because they are the most neutral and common pattern to play with.
TIP THREE: THREE’S A CROWD
If you’re layering pattern on pattern, keep the third a solid. Pattern x2 is great, but pattern x3 can be disastrous if not careful.
